White House Says Trump Showing Mild Covid-19 Symptoms

Mark Meadows, the White House chief of staff, told reporters that President Trump has “mild symptoms” of the coronavirus, and said they learned of the test results of Hope Hicks, one of Mr. Trump’s aides, as they were en route to Joint Base Andrews.

I’m not going to get into any particular treatment that he may or may not have. He has mild symptoms, as we look at that the doctor will continue to provide expertise in the residence. He’s in the residence now. Actually, as we look at this, I’m not going to get into the tick-tock. I can tell you, in terms of Hope, Hope Hicks, we discovered that right as the Marine One was taking off yesterday — we actually pulled some of the people that had been traveling and in in close contact. The reason why it was reported out and just frankly, is that we had already started the contact tracing just prior to that event. As you know, last night even in the early hours of this morning, the minute we got a confirmatory test on the president we felt like it was important to get the news out there at that time. And so that’s why we sent out the tweet. We’ve tested all of our core staff, and I can tell you that Mr. Kushner, Mr. Scavino, myself, a number of us have been tested and have come back with negative results, and yet at the same time, I fully expect that as this virus continues to go on other people in the White House will certainly have a positive test result. And we’ve got the mitigation plan in place to make sure that the government not only continues to move forward, but the work of the American people continues to move forward.
